HC Deb 06 July 1910 vol 18 c1614

asked the number of stokers and engine-room artificers required in a battleship of the "Dreadnought" class when using coal as fuel and when using oil as fuel; what would be the saving in wages if oil were used as fuel; whether it is the intention of the Admiralty to effect this saving by extending the use of oil as fuel in His Majesty's ships and vessels of war?


It is contrary to the practice to furnish information with regard to the complements of His Majesty's ships, which are confidential. I regret I am unable to give the information for which the hon. Gentleman asks.
